Chapter 1: Congress to consider term limits amendment to U.S. Constitution
Congressman Matt Salmon is in his fourth term, but that hasn’t stopped him from proposing a Constitutional amendment to impose term limits on members of Congress to just two. This follows Senator David Vitter’s similar proposal in January to the Senate. A recent Gallup poll puts favorability for Congressional term limits at 75 percent but a Constitutional Amendment requires more than a popular position even if Congress were to approve it. We talk to Phil Blumel, President of U.S. Term Limits.
Chapter 2: Public defenders seeing furloughs under sequestration
This year marks 50 since the Supreme Court gave the guarantee of legal defense regardless of one’s ability to pay for one in the decision Gideon v. Wainwright. Many more cases have been decided since then that have impacted the definition of that right, but simple economics has impacted it more than any legal precedent. In many public defenders’ offices, heavy case loads and a lack of resources mean, in practical terms, an erosion of that right. Now news that public defenders are no exception to furloughs due to sequestration cuts threatens to exacerbate the problem. We talk to Jonathan Rapping, law professor at Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School and a career public defender who founded Gideon’s Promise.
Due Diligence is reporting live from Charleston South Carolina, the center of the activity surrounding the race for state's First Congressional District. National attention has focused on this race for Congress that pits a scandalous ex-governor against the sister of comedian Stephen Colbert. The latest polling suggests it’s still anyone’s victory as Republicans rally to try to keep the seat and Democrats are tempted by an off-year pickup.
We talk to Republican nominee Mark Sanford, State Democratic Party chairman Jaime Harrison, Charleston County Republican Party Chairman Joe Bustos, South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn, Texas Congressman Jaoquin Castro and some constituents.
Chapter 1: House Passes Bill to Criminalize False Claims About Military Honors
The House of Representatives just passed a new version of the Stolen Valor Act which would make it a federal crime to lie about military honors. A similar law had been in effect for six years until the Supreme Court ruled it as unconstitutional last year. The new version of the bill works around the ruling making it illegal only in cases in which someone lies for material profit. A Senate version has been introduced but is waiting committee approval. We talk to Mark Seavey, New Media Manager , American Legion, and an attorney familiar with the Stolen Valor Act law.
Chapter 2: Apple CEO Tim Cook Grilled by Congress About Tax Evasion
Apple CEO Tim Cook visited The Hill today to answer questions regarding accusations his company took advantage of tax loopholes by using a shell company in Ireland to indemnify profits. Cook defended the practices in front of the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations earlier today saying they comply with the law and pay all the taxes the company is due. Rather he blamed what he called an outdated tax code and called for a simplified tax system that lowers rates and provides for a reasonable tax on foreign earnings. We talk to Mihir Desai, Professor of Finance at Harvard Business School, and Matthew Gardner with Citizens for Tax Justice and author of the CTJ’s Apple report.
Chapter 3: Congress Considers Reducing Science Funding and Heightening Peer Review Requirements
We talk to Jeff Mervis of Science Magazine.

Today The Indiegenous Services will discuss the many ways Due Process is used. How does a violation of Due Process happen and how to win a case using it.
Due process is the legal requirement that the state must respect all of the legal rights that are owed to a person. Typically, "Due process" means 1) NOTICE, generally written, but some courts have determined, in rare circumstances, other types of notice suffice.Notice should provide sufficient detail to fully inform the individual of the decision or activity that will have an effect on his/her rights or property or person. 2) right to GRIEVE (that being the right to complain or to disagree with the governmental actor/entity which has decision making authority) and 3) the right to APPEAL if not satisfied with the outcome of the grievance procedure.

Due diligence is often thought as a negative, antagonistic process when investors and entrepreneurs consider working together - a necessary form of evil. But Lauri Elliott's discussion with Joseph Price of Triomphe Consulting sheds a different perspective while providing practical tips for both entrepreneurs and investors.
This episode is a special collaboration with VC4Africa.biz.
In Chapter 1, we discuss the NSA practice of reviewing phone records and the ramifications of leaking information on those classified programs. We talk to Michael Figura of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee.
In Chapter 2, we talk immigration. The Immigration reform bill is hitting the senate floor tomorrow with many senate republicans coming out in support of the measures to give a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented residents as well as increase in border security. While Republicans are concerned about future potential losses at the polls as a result of low Hispanic support, there is still plenty of dissention among the ranks about various aspects of the reform package. First, we talk to Seung Min Kim Congressional reporter for Politico who has been following the issue. Then we’ll hear from David Horowitz, columnist for Roll Call who wrote a column on the challenges Republicans face in deciding whether to support the bill.
We get an update on the IRS scandals. The Internal Revenue Service has been in front of one house committee or another 6 times now. Most recently was an investigation into overspending on conferences revealing the department had spent around 50 million dollars on activities for employees between 2010 and 2012 that included presidential suites, pricey speakers and other perks. In one telling example, the agency spent $50,000 to produce a star trek parody video. Meanwhile, new IRS commissioner Daniel Werfel is trying to get the house in order and seems to be getting a short honeymoon, but Republicans have said they expect changes soon.
